I now have 179,000 kms on this POS and its still "nickel and diming" me to death.
The front end is rattling again after it had front struts, sway bar links, and tie rod ends installed at 145,000 Kms.
The E-brake light is on and beeping.
I don't use it so I don't understand why it would need service.
The traction control switch fell through the hole in the console for no apparent reason.
I had to replace the power steering pump because it was leaking badly.
The oil pan is leaking again, at least I think it's the oil pan.
The coil packs (5th set) are due to be changed again because the car stutters at times and that lets me know the coil packs will need changing soon. FORD - you suck!!!

I purchased my 2005ls in 2006 with 20,000 miles on it. Now has 60,000. Nice body style but... Buyer beware! I have had a lot of trouble with this car and its in the shop again today. Always a problem with coils, the engine and other things. Reliability is very poor. I believe there should be recalls for these problems. Can any one help?

I'm the not so proud owner of a '05 LS V6.
This car has been a royal pain since I bought it. It's got 130K kms on it now.
I can't keep coils or catalytic converters on it to save my a_ _.
I contacted Ford 3 times and all I got was lip service from there complaint desk.
I've been stranded so many times and spent so much money on this piece of garbage in repairs it's ridiculous.
I was planning on buying a MKS but after all this pain it's not going to happen.

I purchased a Lincoln new. 3 months after the manufacturer's warranty expired and only 46,500 miles driven, I started experiencing problems; first the ignition coils($600 aftermarket), the air conditioner($400), parking brakes, brake rotors, pvc tube, etc. I wrote Ford-Lincoln numerous times, but they have refused to take responsibility. Don't be deceived, after more research, Others have experienced the same problems. These are common problems with the Lincoln models, I don't understand why there have not been a recall?

I'm a 20 year old male who went from a 1999 Mercury Sable LS to a 2005 Lincoln LS V6 Luxury. The exterior of the car is just great. It's a very sharp looking car that turns heads. The base audio system puts out a good amount of power. It gives a very comfortable drive in town and on long highway trips. Car really hugs the road on winding and hilly roads. Not up to par with the European industry leaders, but good for what it is.

I loved driving the Lincoln LS-Great Car!But accidently ran off road dodging deer, car slide down incline & hit covert. When car flipped 3 to 4 times completely totalling out car the only airbag that deployed was passenger's side front. Car nose dived on driver's side flipping & hit every point on car but the steering wheel nor side airbags ever deployed. Lucky to be alive! If you own a Lincoln LS have airbags checked-end this accident I was informed all airbags should've deployed that would've help prevent alot of pain & stay in hospital.
Let me start out by telling you guy the story on this car. I bought this car really cheap from a friend that owns a pawn shop. The car is a 2005 Lincoln ls v6 with 61k. I took it to ADVANCED AUTO and ...
Well, my wife's '95 SHO is really dying and we've been driving just about everything on 4 wheels over the last year and the only thing that she feels approaches the SHO's ride and power (without spend...
